A fast-track court here on Saturday framed charges against five accused in the December 16 gang-rape case and put them on trial on various counts, including conspiracy to abduct the 23-year-old woman and sexually assault and murder her.

Additional Sessions Judge Yogesh Khanna said the trial in the case would begin on Tuesday. The court stated that there were facts prima facie that suggested that the five accused, along with the sixth juvenile accused, conspired to lure the victim and her male friend into boarding the bus by making them believe that it was providing transport services.

The court framed 14 charges against the accused under  several IPC sections including 302 (murder), which carries death penalty, 307 (attempt to murder), 376 (2) (g) (for committing act of gang-rape) and 377 (unnatural offences). The court added a charge of section 366 for abducting her to force her into illicit intercourse.
